Thanks for the thoughtful, considered response. As a writer, I do agree with many of your points about authorship, and I have read The Economist’s perspective on the value of keeping authors anonymous (protects them, enables them to investigate deeply, etc…).
So I kind of see both sides. I guess as long as there are alternate sources and voices I guess it’s ok for them to want to maintain their singular vision and let the market decide.
Can you recommend other sources for economics news and thought leadership for someone not in the field?
